King's Square (Königsplatz) was initially built to serve the urban notions

of King Ludwig I, who wished to integrate culture, administration, Christianity and Bavarian military in one massive green space. The king opted for a European Neoclassic style based on the Acropolis in Athens. He even had two museums built in the same style; first was the Glyptothek, where he could house his sprawling collection of Greek and Roman sculptures, and second, the Bavarian State Collection of Antiques, which contains Greek, Etruscan and Roman artifacts. King Ludwig I also commissioned the Propylaea, an imposing and austere gate which served as a memorial to his son, the Bavarian prince Otto of Greece.

Despite this architectural and urban prowess, the square is now infamous for being the place where the Nazi party held marches and mass rallies during the Holocaust. In fact, the national headquarters of the Nazi party, the Brown House, was located on Brienner Straße just off the square. It was even featured in a Nazi propaganda film, The March to the Führer. Two temples were built on Königsplatz to honor the 16 Nazis killed in the failed coup attempt by Adolf Hitler to seize power in 1923 – they were later on destroyed (except for their platforms, which are still visible today) as part of Munich’s denazification by the US Army in 1947.

However, not all Nazi constructions were systematically demolished; the Führerbau, for example, where the Munich Agreement was signed in 1938, still exists to this day and houses a music school.

Today, Königsplatz has returned to its pre‐war appearance and remains one of Munich’s most significant attractions. It is now regarded as the center of Munich’s museum quarter, the Kunstareal.

Third Reich Tour in Munich

Third Reich Tour in Munich

In 1935 Adolf Hitler named Munich the "Hauptstadt der Bewegung" (the capital of the movement). This dubious honour was bestowed upon Munich because the Nazi party was born in the city. With Nazism being born in the Bavarian capital her streets and squares became the preferred setting for rallies and parades of the Hitler regime. On this tour we will trace the rise of Hitler and the Nazis, from the beerhalls he spoke at to the site of infamous Beer Hall Putsch. We will go on to explain how the Nazis came to power while we tour the ‘Brown quarter’, the district where most of the Nazi party offices were located. Many of which still stand today such as Hitler’s office, the "Führerbau". Get to know with Explora Munich the streets where the party began to the headquarters of the high officials of the party where they, with Hitler himself, worked sowing terror throughout the country and around the world.
